This is a project designed to have students learn about Manifest Destiny and Westward expansion through assuming the role of one of the following historical people/groups tied to Manifest Destiny:
• James K. Polk
• Henry Clay
• Moses and/or Stephen Austin
• Santa Anna
• Sam Houston
• Zachary Taylor
• John C. Fremont
• Stephen Kearney
• Lewis & Clark
• Joseph Smith and/or Brigham Young
Students research their person (research documentation and note-sheets included). Guiding questions are provided as are "focus lists" designed to help students focus their research.
Students have a choice of either performing a role play in front of their peers (I have a video of a sample role play, but it is too large to post here, if you purchase the package, I will e-mail the video sample along at no additional charge) or writing a chapter from their "autobiography."
